2012 will end the same way the year has begun: With a release by Summons of Shining Ruins. And it will be a double release. The first part is "Shiho". Most of you know this project by Shinobu Nemoto. He released his work on labels like Install, Experimedia, Dead Pilot Records, Analogpath, Against It Records or on his own imprint Moufu – Rokuon.
"Shiho" is a four track work with a total duration of 36 minutes. Shinobu only works with an electric guitar and a feedback device. And with this minimal setup he creates an amazing sharp and clear soundscape. Guitar tones are swirling around like snow flakes or gusts of frosty winter wind. Like his other works as Summons of Shining Ruins, "Shiho" has a very elemental and essential feeling. Stripped down to the bones and condensed to the essence.
Enjoy Shinobu's work in preparation of the holiday season and look forward to the second release, coming around the end of the year.
